Abstract The VA Office of Inspector General Administrative Investigations Division investigated an allegation that Dr. Vance failed to disclose that he had a settlement agreement with his former Federal employer on the Federal Declaration of Employment form (OF 306) that he completed as part of the VA employment process. We also investigated whether Dr. Vance failed to follow travel policy and whether he misused his position for the personal gain of a friend. To assess these allegations, we interviewed Dr. Vance; Ms. Alice Muellerweiss, Dean of the VALU; Dr. Arthur McMahan, current Deputy Dean of VALU; former Deputy Dean of VALU; Ms. Anita Wood, Director of VALU Policy and Resource Management; and other VA employees. We also reviewed personnel files and email records, as well as applicable Federal laws, regulations, and VA policy.
